Guess How Much I Love You & I Love My Little Storybook
Wednesday October 4, 2017 6:30pm

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents Guess How Much I Love You and I Love My Little Storybook, adapted, directed and designed by Jim Morrow, music by Steven Naylor, and narrated by Beau Bridges.

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. And so it continues… In I Love My Little Storybook, an eager little bunny lies on the grass and opens his book, and within moments, the story he’s reading comes alive in fascinating detail.

The program runs under one hour, including a Q&A session with the performers after the show.

$14 advance / $16 door
Includes taxes & fees.

 


 

Windsor Ghost Walk Stage Show
Thursday October 26, 2017 7:30pm

Presented by the Quick As A Wink Theatre Society and Valley Ghost Walks, this event has gradually expanded to include multiple locations throughout the area, showcasing haunted historical tidbits in Kentville, Wolfville, Halls Harbour, and here in Windsor.

These walks are a creatively spooky way to enjoy a memorable history lesson of “The Athens of Nova Scotia.” Presented throughout the summer and fall as a walking tour around the town, the stage version features the same ghostly visitors all in one place, led with charm and style by Jerome the Gravekeeper, just in time for Halloween.

$13 advance / $16 door

 


 

Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny
Sunday May 13, 2018 6pm

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents
“Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny”
based on the books by Margaret Wise Brown

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny’s pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from his loving mum. Both feature endearing rabbit characters, and the soothing rhythms of bunny banter and dream-like imagery never fail to infuse young readers with a reassuring sense of security. Mermaid’s staged adaptation brings a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations, and celebrates the contributions of author Margaret Wise Brown.

The program runs under one hour, including a Q&A session with the performers after the show.

The Rainbow Fish
Tuesday June 12, 2018 6:30pm

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s brand new show, “The Rainbow Fish”, includes an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s colourful story as well two of the author’s companion tales, “Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea” and “Opposites.” It will celebrate its Nova Scotia premiere at MIPAC on Tue, Jun 12, 2018.

“The Rainbow Fish” tells the story of the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. “Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea” highlights further adventures, and “Opposites” uses striking images from Rainbow Fish’s underwater wonderland to introduce very young children to the concept of opposites. As a fitting finale, and story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.

The program runs under one hour, including a Q&A session with the performers after the show.
